here, editor of "the new york times" magazine, hugo lindgren. sam stein is caught on a train somewhere between newark and penn station. moving on, what started as praise for secretary clinton's tenure as secretary of state soon evolved into a partisan debate with republicans demanding to know if the administration misled the american public over benghazi. >> we were misled there were supposedly protests and something sprang out of that, assaults sprang out of that. that was easily ascertained that was not the fact, and the american people could have known that within days, and they didn't know that. >> with all due respect, the fact is we had four dead americans. was it because of protests or guys out on a walk one night decided to kill some americans. what difference, at this point, does it make? it is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again. >> surprising exactly no one, senator john mccain was still demanding answers. >> the american people deserve to know answers, and they certainly don't deserve false answers. people don

huffington post's" sam stein and "time" magazine's michael crowley. you guys are both good at analyzing these things. i thought schumer would take more time. that's why i'm impressed. he had the interview, asked the questions. got it on the record, maybe got a little more pro-hawkish than he was to start with the interview, but he got what he needed. i was impressed at the speed with which this is being done. your thoughts? >> i'm sort of with you on the one hand. it looked like schumer had legitimate concerns about what hagel's positions were with respect to iran and israel. then again, i thought about what was behind the act? in the end it was a democratic president appointing a cabinet member. it didn't shock me that schumer was on board. i was surprised by the speed. but it looks like it's shaping up for a relatively more comfortable confirmation battle for chuck hagel. >> michael, what i think, it's not about attitude. i don't know where cardin is going to go. he expressed concerns in the beginning. i don't know where a lot of people from big states, jewish communities are more sen

-executing. that while freedom is a gift from god, it must be secured by his people here on earth. >> sam stein, that is obviously the president who was uniquely delivered here to deliver that section of that speech. >> yeah, and i'm not going to say anything original here -- >> no, no, at 10:35, we're not expecting anything original. we used that earlier in the show. by the way, if there is anything from the first half hour that you would like to repeat. >> no, i was just going to say, if you thought they were good dancers, the president and first lady, you should have seen me, but to your point. >> and on your second dance did you get warmer? >> yeah, you get into it a little more. it was a really aggressive speech. it was an assertive speech, signalled something different from the president. i remember watching it thinking that the first inaugural speech was so different, this was an up-front defense of what the government can do in society. that was an important point, for his second term, which will require the government to be a lot of his policies. >> let's listen to what he said about c

, selma, and stonewall. sam stein covers politics for "the huffington post," and stephanie schriock is president of emily's list. let's start with the message of inclusion and community in the president's address yesterday. many have noticed his preference for three iconic places with historic significance in the fight for american rights. let me run through them. first, seneca falls, new york, where in 1848 elizabeth cady stanton and others led a historic convention dedicated to women's rights which later led to a women's right to vote, of course. selma, alabama, the city where civil rights demonstrators fought for voting rights for african-americans in the march of 1965 only to be met violently by armed state troopers in a day that has since been known as bloody sunday. and the stonewall inn, often thought of the birthplace of the lgbt rights after a gay bar was raided by police in 1969 and for days became the site of protests and riots. here is the president yesterday. >> we, the people, declare today that the most evident of truths, that all of us are created equal, is the star
? is this really the smart thing to do for us? we've got peter beinart right now with the daily beast and sam stein with "the huffington post." thank you. i have been reading your stuff. sam, you quoted colonel lawrence wilkerson who served as chief of staff to colin powell. when he was secretary of state. here is what he told you about republican opposition to hagel. quote, it's not all about revenge or retaliation for anti-party stances in the past but fear of what hagel's advice and counsel might be in the future. the hardline gopers and the neocons have unfulfilled plans, plans for syria, iran, and the greater middle east. these plans that envision almost endless conflict in the region are in the main opposed by people such as hagel. well, sam, you point and it may well be true you've done more work on this than i have. the sense that the vision is for almost an orwellian war in "1984," endless war in the middle east, is that the prospect that the neocons hold for us? >> i don't know if it's that stated, but it certainly is underlining a lot of what we're hearing about hagel now. a lot of the m
